Students will be able to measure the force which causes a body to rotate about a given point and the moment arm associated with that force. They will be able to use these values, the force and moment arm, to compute the moment (sometimes called torque) due to the force

Equipment Included:

  • 10 hooks

  • 20 force scales

  • 10 bathroom scales

  • 10 moment arm set-ups
